Northeast Tarrant cities plan for storm debris

Bedford

Residents can drop off storm debris and fallen trees site at Meadowpark, 3200 Meadowpark Drive, or cut debris into 4foot lengths weighing less than 50 pounds and place them at the curb for Allied Waste to pick up. Items larger than this will still be picked up by Allied Waste, but it will require specialized equipment and take longer. Allied will be picking up storm related debris only on upcoming Saturdays.

Call Allied Waste at 817-332-7301 to schedule a pickup or call Mirenda Walden with the city of Bedford at 817-952-2107.

Residents should keep their regular trash separate from debris bundles so that regular trash pickup on Mondays and Thursdays is not delayed.

Colleyville

The city will pay its waste hauler, IESI, to make an extra pass through the city to pick up storm debris in about a week, city spokeswoman Mona Gandy said. The city is waiting for word from IESI about how residents should bundle limbs and other debris, she said. The city is considering April 19 for the extra pickup, but residents should watch the city’s Web site, www.colleyville.com or call 817-503-1111 for information.
